Says the guy who drafted closers in rounds 1-15 in the CC league. :-D


And the guy who I'm beating in saves singlehandedly with Brandon Lyon. :-b ;-)

takatsu and hoffman... i think yes... and i agree fantasy baseball owners, e.g. myself, are paranoid, but we have a right to be... 50 dollars and our pride are invested in these overpaid players' ability to do their jobs. And when they don't, we need answers!

You will note that none of the 20 closers that I drafted are named Wickman, Looper, Cordero or Takatsu :-)

And Mercer if my Lidge, Nathan and Wagner I loose saves to your Lyon, Baez and Dotel this week I will eat my hat - you can't see but I'm wearing a 10 gallon stetson right now. btw - good move benching Weaver. ;-D

Guess I need to hope for some blowouts by PHI, HOU, and MIN (who I'm going to see on Saturday vs. CLE) this week. :-b

The Weaver thing was total luck...I just noticed that Garcia was pitching twice this week and figured I'd give him a shot. :-°

The elite closers wont lose their jobs unless it really gets out of hand but the suspect closers may be in jeopordy if blown saves continue to come. Just give it time though, it is a small sample size.

I would not say Takatsu is elite...I think it's only amount of time before his lack of a fastball comes back to haunt him.

Anyway, saves are an inconsistent stat and it's only been a short week and a half
